It’s even harder when people are trying to encourage you by telling you that God chooses his strongest soldiers for His battles. You will just be there asking yourself why it had to be you and which strength are people referring to when you feel hopeless and just wish you could stop feeling.

A straight forward question. Isn’t it? But first what does fellowship mean? According to the free dictionary, online, fellowship is defined as ”The companionship of individuals in a congenial atmosphere and on equal terms.” Many-a-times as people , we take this issue of fellowship lightly. We do whatever we want to do, anyhow we want to do it, with whomever we want to do it with. But I believe when we talk of spirituality, great sensitivity and selectivity ought to be exercised in such issues.

We already lost mama when she went to the shops a few months back.

I am a product of prayer, mine and others. I believe you are too. That is why I strongly believe that after praying we should go on and live like we really placed our issues in the master’s hands.
